PIL In HC Seeking Permission To Hold Durga Puja In Odisha’s Cuttack City

Cuttack: The Balu Bazaar Puja Committee in the city has filed a public interest litigation in the Orissa High Court seeking permission to organise Durga Puja this year.

The committee, while praying the court to direct the state government to allow the festival, has assured that it will be celebrated with strict adherence to COVID-19 guidelines.

The committee has also contended that the government, which had allowed the Rath Yatra to be conducted in Puri amid COVID-19 pandemic, should also give permission for the Durga Puja festival which has been celebrated for more than 500 years.
